According to Total Licensing (via ANN), there’s a Professor Layton TV series in the works. It’s apparently slated for 2018 with 26 episodes planned. It’s unclear whether this is animated or live-action, but smart money says animated.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.
